    5 day comparison chart interesting perspective

    KBW Bank Index shows 0% change from open Tuesday to close Monday, BBT shows up 2% for that period. USB which Cramer touts to his flock has exact same end point as BBT line.

    Among those I put in the comparison only BAC better than BBT for the 5 day period, 4% vs 2%. FYI others I included only because they came to mind in 2 seconds reflection are C, WFC, STI, RF and the Dow.

    ALL of the bank lines show the down trend 2:30 to 3 and the pothole from 3 to 3:26 with the Dow a faint shadow of those trend lines.

    All in all, after all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth, and the bashers ranting, BBT really no more damaged than the others in my comparison, and all banks showing roughly the same reaction to the forces of the day. BBT felt a little more disappointing because the nice gains Thursday and Friday had to be given up to get back to the pattern of the larger part of the group. Only RF (-6%) and STI (-2%) show losses for the 5 day period - in the group listed.

    The daily volatility is sort of like wetting your pants, sometimes it gives you a nice warm feeling, sometimes despair and mortification, but after a while no one remembers.
